This is a fantastic restaurant! I ws very impressed by the service. Very professional and they were always there if I needed something-always refilling my water, etc. I had the fix-priced menu for lunch. The clam chowder, fish and creme brûlée were all excellent. On top of that, Waterfront restaurant has one of the best views to be had in San Francisco! More

American | Nob Hill, San Francisco

First server was rude, arrogant, downright obnoxious. Manager stepped in and she was amazing. I wish I remembered the server’s name so I could advise that you ask not to be seated with her.... overall, great place. Will go back, but will ask not to be seated with the angry, miserable, hating server who acted as if she hated people and was annoyed we were there. More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
